BELLEVUE — A fire that likely started in a garage ravaged a house Sunday at 2217 Kensington Lane.

No occupants were home when the fire started, and there were no injuries.

The Bellevue Fire Department was called to the home about 4:30 p.m. Sunday. Capt. David Dellemann said the garage was fully engulfed in flames when crews arrived.

 “This was an intense fire. It was always ahead of us,” he said. “The fire was fully involved, which gives the advantage to the fire.”

 The cause of the blaze is unknown, and the house, as well as a vehicle inside the garage, appear to be a total loss.

 The Northeast Wisconsin Region of the American Red Cross said it is assisting the family of three adults and four children.

 The property is owned by Chi Nguyen and valued at $187,700, according to Brown County land records.

 The fire is the second in Bellevue in four days. A trailer home on Bellevue Street is a total loss after it was engulfed in flames Thursday afternoon.
